Pizza lovers, avert your eyes. A true tragedy has unfolded in Arkansas. A tractor trailer crashed into a wall on Interstate 30, causing a crash.
While (fortunately) no people were injured, the same can't be said for the hundreds and hundreds of frozen pizzas that the truck was carrying. Seriously, look at this carnage. So many delicious pizzas (reports said that they were DiGiorno and Tombstone brand pepperoni pies) gone to waste. Can you even stand the sight?

Oh, and if you think the people of Little Rock were capitalizing on this by scoring some free dinner, think again:
@THV11 @myARDOT For those asking. The pizzas have been run over and many have diesel fluid on them, so there won't be pizza for dinner for any of us.
So it really is a lose-lose situation. In all seriousness, we're glad no humans were injured, but we'll never be okay with the thought of wasted pizza.
